Problems pdf

This is the result from printing to pdf. Why the white margin? there was not in Scribus 1.3.3.14

hello antonio

what do you mean with: "printing to pdf"?
did you generate this file with: 'file' → 'export' → 'save as pdf' or with: 'file' → 'print' – and then you selected an external pdf-writer?

hello utnik

(sorry for my english: i am italian)

I mean

'file' → 'export' → 'save as pdf'

an example of the review (with Scribus 1.3.3.14) is in

hello antonio

if you exported it as a pdf, it looks as if you checked the box: 'clip to printer margins' ('solo entro margini stampante') - could that be the problem?

I once again ask: Have you set bleeds or not? It looks as if you are using bleeds.

on top of all the hints you're getting to try to solve your problem, i'd like to ask you to add your work to the list of success stories with scribus...

…yes, but with a more sensible picture management, if possible. most of the pictures are scaled with different values for x and y dimensions…

i don't understand, what happens – could you upload a sla and a pdf file somewhere? (one page is enough…)
i would take a look at it and try to solve the mistery…

ok, utnik. Today i try.
In any case, the print settings are the same as the version 1.3.3.16.
The sla files is the same.
The virtual printer is "pdf creator".

boohhh   ???

good morning

ciao antonio,

if you're doing everything correctly, scribus is not using your virtual printer but its own pdf creation library...
you seem to use "file > export > save as pdf" so it should be correct...

i also wonder where the problem is...

ciao

hello antonio

as nermander suspected, it's a bleed issue.

in 'file' → 'document setup' → 'pdf export' → 'pre-press' ('file' → 'impostazioni documento' → 'pdf export' → 'pre-press') i found the settings you see in my screenshot. if you set the bleeds to '0' the pdf will be ok.

btw: i recommend to use scribus 1.4.0rc6 instead of the outdated 1.3.3.14!
